With the exception of its toothpaste ingredient, SANGI supplies hydroxyapatites for a wide range of applications according to users' requirements. We also offer a series of unique, chiefly inorganic antibacterial additives for industrial use, under the APACIDER brand, for example in the manufacture of plastics and textiles, or cosmetics and other personal care products.
By combining bio-friendly hydroxyapatite and analogous calcium phosphate material with metallic silver, copper or zinc, rather than with compounds of the same metals, SANGI’s APACIDER technology offers an advantage over standard organic or metal compound-based antibacterial agents, in that there is virtually no elution of metal ions. As a result, we can offer safe, longer-acting antibacterial agents that are resistant to fluctuations in temperature, and will not cause discoloration in the finished product. Several of them are U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved.
